Forbidden Fruit Friday

Maya's "Man Candy" Vampires 

What makes a man sexy? The answers are obviously subjective.

When I’m in character development, I use a three trigger point system to create my man. When I think about physical attraction, it’s these trigger points that always proves to be a sure fire way of capturing the essence of magnetism. Sure, each trigger has endless qualities or factors that a woman’s taste will vary on, but in its primitive form, these are the ingredients to create an undeniable and delicious temptation.

1. Masculinity- Firm butt? Bulging Bicep? Washboard abs? No. Masculinity is not always an anatomical attribute. Masculinity is inherent and embodied in the most basic characteristics of the man. It’s in his stance, in his walk, the way he takes a swig of his beer, answers the phone, nods a response, sits in a chair, or grunts during lovemaking. Even if reminiscent of caveman-like tendencies, it’s still all man and oozes that natural and innate manliness.

2. Capture-Loving a man’s eyes or smile does not necessarily mean it’s the particular color or shape that breeds the attraction or the perfectly constructed veneers that takes your breath away. Why a woman is instantly captured is centered all on what his eyes and smile speaks to her.  A glint, sparkle, wink, stare, or smirk, can whisper “come here”, “you make me happy”, “you’re the one”, or “kiss me”. Speaking without words breaks down resistance and is a great power two people can savor.

3. Confidence-Acting like a “look-at-me” asshole is not confidence…but rather the lack thereof.  Confidence is the man that doesn’t need horns announcing his arrival to make a statement in a room. The poise and assurance he carries exudes an aura of authority that keeps a woman’s eyes riveted. Even if sitting in a darkened corner, a good balance of self assurance can put him in the spotlight, as if he was on a stage.
So, there you go- my three-step process of molding my male characters. Although built by a formula, they are never the same. And this is exactly what I look for in my on-screen and print counterparts for my characters.

Tonight, Rain Calisto searches for her man, and Rhys Matthews comes into focus. He is well-built and sinisterly sexy. In the same Denver nightclub, Armand Anastasio searches for his woman—Rain. But the men are more than gorgeous. They are vampires, and they are unmated. A chance encounter lands Rhys and Rain together. Their attraction remains undeniably powerful and they fall prey to lust. With each passionate tryst, Rhys senses a connection that goes beyond the flesh. Unbeknownst to Rhys, Rain is a diabetic. Her insulin alters her biological makeup, disguising a revelation he isn't quite prepared for. Rain is Rhys's fated mate. As they struggle with this knowledge, another bombshell is dropped. Rain's insulin-laced tissue creates a rare vampiric blood that can fetch a hefty profit, and Armand has always known this. Is his attraction to Rain genuine, or is he just out for her blood? This is the diary of Rain and Rhys. Recorded here is their transformation from a flesh fantasy to eternal love. ** A Siren Erotic Romance


A newborn vampire. A powerful leader. An inconsolable woman. The shaping of their eternity all lies within the eyes. Steffan Matthews is the devastatingly handsome vampire leader of Ambrose Heights. He cultivates social order and invents concoctions that allow vampires to feel human once again. But Steffan also has a devouring obsession that brings him to his knees. Her name is Anya. Steffan sets out to claim Anya, a mortal ripe for the taking, as his mate. But the blackness in the eyes of his newborn should've served as a warning. Anya is off-limits according to the vampire creed. It will take the strength of the kinship, the purity of love, a hint of magic, and a subterranean guardian to shield Steffan against the wrath of Ryan Evans, protect him from the fate of the Nemesis, and bridge a passage to his rightful destiny. ** A Siren Erotic Romance


When is it real? When is it fantasy?

For Luna Kalen, the line between reality and a dream is hard to recognize.

Recovering from a car accident, the solitude at the coast is meant to be therapeutic. But Luna soon finds it more than her idle mind can handle.

After exploring a dangerous stretch of shoreline, Luna returns home with a mysterious man she discovers in a cave. Little does Luna know that this man is about to fill her world with sinful pleasures…and blood-thirsty vampires.

When reality and fantasy collide, unimaginable dangers lurk, revelations are revealed, and darkest desires are fulfilled.

But if you think the happily ever after is the sign of the ending, it’s really only the beginning.

Should Luna have listened to the warning? Do not go into the cave.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave


Noel Tierney thought she’d have enough time before the predicted storm to make it to her holiday retreat, but the snow hit sooner than expected. Caught unprepared on a treacherous pass, poor visibility and icy conditions lead to a crash. She lay immobile in her vehicle, stranded in a ditch in the most remote leg of her journey.

A faceless hero comes to her rescue and Noel has no choice but to wait out the blizzard in her rescuer’s unique cabin nestled in the woods. Everything about Grayson James peaks her curiosity—his valor, air of mystery and most of all, undeniable attractiveness.

For three days and nights, passions are unleashed and unexpected emotions are brought to life. When the storm breaks, Grayson vanishes into thin air, but not before revealing startling news that leaves her questioning her sanity.

Fast forward years later and Noel is in the southernmost part of the United States. She’d come seeking solace after her husband’s tragic death, but what finds her in Key West is more than she ever anticipated.

In the sultry summer, her unbridled winter’s ecstasy resurrects.

And so does the Vampire. 


Nicholas Jones Whitaker III lives in interesting times.

The year is 2049. He’s a Hollywood actor with a type-casted career of portraying mythical creatures —vampires.

But thirteen years ago, vampires were discovered and no longer creatures of myth, but of reality. The newfound coexistence has vampires inhabiting the synthetic world of Dome City. Annexed as territory of the U.S, humans are granted access to the dome and vampires, now classified as Immortizens, have passage rights outside their world, all under the watchful eye of The Alliance.

Enamored with his vampire portrayals, the Immortizens invite Nicholas to Dome City to participate in a celebrity charity bachelor auction. Marking their first year of dome life, the Christmas event is meant to stimulate the economy and bridge the two races.

Yet when Nicholas realizes his own celebrity crush, Crimson Snow, has her eye on him for the auction; charity is no longer his drive, desire is.

Passions unearth. New experiences rock his world. Where human love has its limits, an Immortizens’ is boundless.

But the invitation is more than meets the eye.

Nicholas holds something unique that he’s about to discover and his gift to the Immortizens for the Christmas season will mark him as their very own St. Nick.
